Deanna Templeton captures the intricacies and emotional turmoil of adolescence in her latest monograph, What She Said. | 1854 Photography

Pairing extracts of pages from her personal diaries with portraits of young women in their teens, the American photographer paints a candid picture around the complexity of growing up.

The placement of Templeton’s accounts and the photographs was carefully considered, to ensure no mistakes were made with regard to associating particular words with specific images. She was especially mindful of sequencing. “I didn’t want to place any entry I thought was really sensitive next to a person,” she says. “I didn’t want any misinterpretations.” By candidly revealing her intimate thoughts and reflections, Templeton de-stigmatises subjects which too often go undiscussed, demonstrating a path through even the most difficult times.

I’m always aware of my emotional and mental space, as this can send off signals and affect how I’m received in public. Your energy and body language have to be open and clear with intention, because if not you will face problems with people reacting to you, and being threatened by you and your camera.
